ISS invites you to join us for a webinar on corporate governance reforms through securities class actions. The webinar will examine the rise of institutional lead plaintiffs, the impact of institutional lead plaintiffs on settlement size and attorneys' fees, key settlements with governance reforms, and the future of reform through securities class actions.
As head of research for ISS' Securities Class Action Services, I will moderate the panel. I will be joined by the following distinguished guest speakers:
Among their many publications, Professor Cox and Professor Thomas have co-authored several important articles addressing securities class actions and governance issues including Does the Plaintiff Matter?: An Empirical Analysis of Lead Plaintiffs in Securities Class Actions, 100 Columbia Law Review 101-155(2006), and There Are Plaintiffs and ... There Are Plaintiffs: An Empirical Analysis of Securities Class Action Settlements, 61 Vanderbilt Law Review 355-386 (2008).
